Are you interested in the Civil War? More so, are you interested in Gettysburg and the battle that occurred there? The BLC Fellowship committee is presenting “Gettysburg with John”, a 4 day, 3 night excursion to Gettysburg PA, from September 14-17. This will be a multiple lesson, on the battlefield experience taught by John Schmeelk, our resident Civil War expert.
There are two options for lodging: accommodations at the United Lutheran Seminary, Gettysburg Campus, or camping at the Gettysburg Campground. Travel and lodging will be at the expense of each person attending, either Seminary or campground. A per person event cost will include program materials, lunches and dinners for Saturday and Sunday. Breakfast and food for Friday and Monday will be on your own.
The program taught by John will include lessons on Friday night, Saturday, Sunday and Monday morning. There may be some advance reading and lessons at church in the weeks leading up to the event.
At this point, the committee is trying to get a head count as to who may be interested in participating so that we can move forward regarding lodging reservations, especially at the Seminary. (currently we have 12 rooms reserved, double occupancy) The deadline for a firm commitment and payment of the event fee will be July 15th.
Look for more info to follow. The “Gettysburg with John” committee is: The Westcotts, Dresslers, Towsleys, Berners and of course the Schmeelks. Feel free to ask questions.
